Back to the trend of short puzzles! Calah beat me in total score today, so that was pretty cool.
I missed some annoying ones yesterday.
ALLAY: I’m afraid I missed this.
ARRAY: And I use Excel!
AWRY: Like how some of this puzzle went for me.
DRAY: I missed this beer cart again!
DRYAD: I missed this tree nymph again!
DRYWALL: It turns into steam when fire hits it. Who knew?
DYAD: Part of the misses in this area.
KAYAK: I miss kayaking. I went with my cousins a while ago.
YAWL: A two-masted fore-and-aft-rigged sailing boat with the mizzenmast stepped far aft so that the mizzen boom overhangs the stern.
Final score: 24 words for 84 points.
Genius minimum: 79 points
First word: HITCH
Missed opportunities: TIKTOK (doesn’t have an H), THOT, THICC, CHOOCHOO, HIPHOP
No crosswords today because I was busy working on the thing for Tuesday’s series about woodworking.
